Stamps with Mexico consignment numbers can be found with a Guadalupe Hidalgo box cancel. At least one 2R stamp, from invoice 154-1864, has been found with this cancel. Stamps which have the G. Hidalgo overprint are invariably cancelled in Mexico City.
It is generally believed that the small "districts" of Guadalupe Hidalgo, Lerma, Rio Frio, San Angel, Tacubaya, Texcoco and Tlalpam were actually sub-offices of Mexico.
